consin twenty to eight. Some six years before this
contest Charles M. Gayley, '76, the author of "The
Yellow and Blue" was responsible for the institu-
tion of football as a Michigan sport and our first
outside game resulted in a defeat for Racine at Chi-
cago in the spring of '79.
Track came into prominence in 1874 and tennis
about six years later, and since that time the realm
of Michigan athletics has been steadily increasing.
Today we have our football, baseball, basketball,
track and-tennis, all highly organized Varsity
sports. Under the category of informal classes of
competition we have any number qf types of athlet-
ics. There is soccer, hockey, swimming, boxing and
wrestling, and now, since the establishment of the
intramural department back in 1913, this list has
been increased to include a number of other forms
of competition-- even the cricket of the days of '49.
It used to be that only a few men were partici-
pating in athletic training at the University, those
few being members of the various teams. With the
large number of sports in which it is now possible
for us to take part, the realm has been extended un-
til by the end of this year estimates show that a
total of about 3,500 men on the campus will have
been engaged during the two semesters in some
sort of athletics. The figures show that we are rap-
idly coming to the point where there will be full op-
portunity for every man to join in some sort of
physical sport and where it will be highly desirable
for him to do so. The organization of sports has
made for better college and intercollegiate spirit;
the work of the intramural department has made for
ail increase in interclass competition under organized
methods and a tendency toward more inclusiveness
regarding those whom the sports may benefit phys-
ically. Certainly the trend of the years is for the
better and should be encouraged by the University
and the student body.
A TOAST TO THE CAPTAIN
To Captain-elect Bud Rea - a crack shot, a stal-
wart guard, and a popular player who will have
the whole team with him - Michigan extends her
good right hand in admiration for his part in the
fight to a championship tie this year, and in a prom-
ise of whole-hearted support while he is re-instill-
ing the wonderful spirit of '21 in the Maize and
Blue squad of '22.'
It is to be hoped that the efficient organization.of
the University police will be on hand to prevent any
Sinn Fein demonstrations at this year's Irish opera.
"Gas last Hurls Students Out College Win-
dows" - says a Free Press headline. Let this be
a lesson to you, professors.

BETTER CLASS ORGANIZATION
With the coming of spring, bringing with it
ioughts of commencement and of the subsequent
eparture of the senior class from the University,
te question of permanent class organization should
e a vital one. There are too many associations
ade in college which all too soon are lost after
e sheepskins are given out and the last good-byes
Alumni reunions are a difficult thing at best to
:hieve, and at Michigan, they are not made as
uch of as in some of the Eastern colleges; sim-
y because as a. rule the graduating classes are
rger and consequently more difficult to assemble
:,any one time. At present, we have sorpe hun-
-ed and forty alumni associations, fully organized
id scattered thro ghout the different cities of the
>untry. But even these cannot do what a full or-
nization, made before each senior class leaves col-
ge, might achieve..
At a meeting to be held when all the Seniors may
present, and when University spirit is uppermost
their minds, plans might be carefully made for
unions, organizations perfected, and the difficulty
many' letters and communications at least to
me extent done away with.
It is all too easy to forget the happy associations
college days in the world outside. How great an
lvance it would be if in the perfection of the
umni organizations of each senior class, provision
ight be made for keeping up the 'old class spirit
Ld for such a handling of reunions as would
ake them more interesting, highly enjoyable affaits
OUR GROWING ATHLETICS
"Athletics," backin the days of '49, "were not
gularly organized, nor had we any gymnasium.
re played baseball, wicket ball, two old cat, etc., but
ere was no football nor any trained 'teams.
here was mere extempore volunteering." Such
the description the president of that year's class
ves of the athletic situation in his time.
When we compare the number of unorganized
rms of sport then-in vogue with the present highly
veloped system of intercollegiate competition we
n realize what a tremendous change has taken
ace in the athletic side of the University's affairs.
those early days there was no thought of organ-
d sport whatever. They had foot races, wood
wing contests, and so on, all entirely impromptu
character. But who nowadays would volunteer
r a wood sawing meet?
Cricket was first organized as a sport in 786o
th an appropriation from the Regents of fifty
llars for a cricket field. But even after that it ap-
ars that most of the sports of the day were inter-
ss and proceeded helter skelter. Football was
aducted entirely along interclass lines and no
lit was set on the number who might compete.
le result was mob rule with all the men on a side
t each class could muster, and the whole affair
[st have resembled our underclass spring games.
But the first real athletic organization of any per-
nent kind came in the days of the Civil war when
ieball became a collegiate sport. In 1882, in our
t intercollegiate game, Mithigan defeated Wis-

11 1 IrYI I l ls
For the remaining days of this week and for the first three days in next
week, we are offering several lots of coats, suits and dresses at $25. This is
really an unheard of opportunity to purchase your Easter clothes, without very
great expense to you. The dresses are new and lovely; exemplifyingas they
do the new style tendencies, with flaring lines and bright colors for trimming.
Brown seems to be the best color this spring and Canton crepe the best ma-
terial, although grey follows a close second and taffeta of course is good.
These frocks have' the wide skirts, many with circular overskirts, tightfitting,
basque like'waists and cunning little puffed sleeves. Colors are navy, Harding
blue, grey, brown, bisque and henna. Trimmings consist-of ribbon, flowers,
embroidery, beads, and pipings of bright colored silk. At'$25, they are a real
The suits are just as jaunty as you could wish. The box coat is coming
into its own this spring and is so becoming to youthful figures. Strictly tailored
models are here, also, if they are more becoming to you. The ripple coat is
emery pretty and is shown quite extensively. Embroidery, beads and sashes
of wide ribbon trim these suits and colors are navy, grey or tweed mixtures.
You will be more than pleased with these suits at $25.
Two styles of coat are here, the semi-wrap style, sometimes verging on
the cape, and the sport model. Either is very good this season and many
models in both styles are here' at this price. Large cape collars, loose sleeves
and fancy stitching make these coats distinctive, while the sport coats are
regulation sport models with patch pockets, fancy belts and large buttons.
If you had been planning for new clothes this spring and yet wished to
economize this is your chance.
